Overview

A toddler's graduation from diapers to the potty is always a very important moment--and one to make parents and toddlers proud! In this book, Henry needs to have his diaper changed so he can go out and play. Then Mom and Dad bring a big box home, and Henry is anxious to open it up and see what's inside. Is it a rocking chair? A bed for Teddy? No, it's a potty--which means it's time for Henry to graduate from diapers. This gentle and humorous little story is charmingly illustrated and told in verse. Little boys will enjoy looking at the pictures and having the story read to them. Meanwhile, they'll start getting the idea that it's time for them to grow up, exactly like Henry. So that at last, they'll be able to say: "I'm off to the potty, No more diapers for me! And I feel great, I am proud of ... ME! Here's a pleasant and effective new way to begin a child's toilet training. Barron's also publishes a potty book for a little girl, starring Hannah. (Ages 1-4)

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-New entries in an already crowded field of books. These two are almost exact duplicates, both in text and illustration. The only differences are the names, Henry/Hannah; the addition or subtraction of a ponytail on the child's head; and the colors used-blue or pink, of course. A cutesy, rhymed text in the child's voice tells toddlers how Henry/Hannah receives his/her very own potty "to use when I am ready." Then the narrator goes on to relate how he/she sits on it, has success, and is rewarded with new underwear, not to mention the praise and applause of Mommy and Daddy. This is virtually the same plot as any other potty-training book aimed at this audience and their parents. Some have a tad more humor and imagination, like Wendy Lewison's The Princess & the Potty (S & S, 1994). Others are a bit more straightforward, such as Alona Frankel's Once Upon a Potty (Barron's, 1980). These two add nothing new or noteworthy or imaginative. Serviceable additions to satisfy demand.-Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

My 2(almost 3) yr old son loved this book during potty training. We kept it in the bathroom and read it while he sat on the potty. He really enjoyed the inspiration the little boy in the story gives to the readers. It is a cute book.

Looked goofy on my Nook. Page count is glitchy. Not a good ebook.

My little boy has finally shown interest in sitting on the potty now that he sees Henry do it! He asks for the "Potty Book" every night now.

My son's grandma bought this book for my son and it 'did' help him with going and he would say, 'Daddy, I did it!'

My son loves this book, we read it at least once a day, and he gets so excited, he knows the book by heart. I agree with the above review--this is more geared for mom/dad households.

Nook version has text on top of text or covered by pictures. It makes it hard to read and impossible for a child to try and read.

This is a wonderful book for introducing your son to potty training. Other reviews complained about the pictures of toilet paper all over or spaghetti on the boy's head, but these were not relavant to the story and did not teach a bad lesson. The book rhymes well and has a good story. It starts with a boy that needs to have his diaper changed to go and play, and talks about how right now 'my diaper is where i pee and poop morning, noon, and night'. Then it transitions to using a potty like mom and dad, having an accident (which is ok), then having success, getting to pick out his own underwear, and finally going to play without a diaper. I especially like that it implies that the little boy decides to use the potty when he's ready - something like 'one morning I wake up and look at my teddy, I'm going to use the potty, i think this time I'm ready'. The only downfall is that it shows the boy using a training potty instead of the regular toilet (we don't use a training potty) but this was not confusing for my 2 1/2 year old. He loves the story and pictures and likes to wave bye-bye to his pee when he flushes, just like Henry in the story.

Love the rhymes and pictures. My only complaint is that some of the text overlaps and one word is ommited and it took me a second to figure out what it was.

I have bought about 10 potty books, and this one is our favorite! He really likes the story and loves the "whoops" in it. Great book!

Wow... where should I began... well before I read this book, my life was a mess, I couldn't pay my rent, I was hunger, oh my lets just say.... I need help. Then one day, after I bought my morning coffee (a mocha frap with whipped cream, and a touch of nutmeg... delicious!) so anyway, I was walking around looking for a book to read, and this book came in my life. It was love at first sight. I literally ran to it, wanting to wrap my arms around it. So after I bought, I went to my car, not driving away, but I started to read it. I read it right there, in one hour. That is the longest book I have ever read, ever in my life, so this was a huge accomplishment for me. Oh I need to add, that it was quite the page turner. So after I read, a wave of responsibility came over me, I said to myself, this is what I said, I said "Petuna, get off your butt and get a job" And now I am currently unemployed which doesn't sound great, but I at least have this book (which I read everyday). The ending makes me cry!!! It is a cliff hanger!!!! DOES HE GET POTTY TRAINED???
